Note that only some of CoralNet's labels have rates provided, and many of those labels only have rates provided in one region.
You can view all the rates CoralNet provides in CSV format here:
Rates are in units of kg CaCO3 m-2 yr-1. A rate above 0 means that the label's presence contributes to positive carbonate production (i.e., calcification). A rate below 0 means that the label's presence contributes to negative carbonate production (i.e., bioerosion).
CoralNet's calcification rates are derived from ReefBudget's data.
Characters: Colonies are corymbose cushions, with short, thick, uniform branches. Axial corallites are distinctive; they are tubular in shape. Radial corallites are closely compacted and all the same size. They have prominent lower lips giving a scale-like appearance. Colour: Commonly green with orange tips. Also may be a distinctive bright salmon pink, pale green or blue (which may photograph purple underwater). Similar Species: Acropora millepora and A. convexa both of which have finer branches. A. millepora is less compact and less corymbose, A. convexa forms compact clumps. Corallites of all three species are similar. A. spathulata is usually brightly coloured. Habitat: Shallow water, usually reef flats, but also lagoons and upper reef slopes. Abundance: Common. Taxonomic Note: Called Acropora millepora by Wallace (1978), Veron and Wallace (1984) and Veron (2000a) and corrected by Wallace (1999).
